Most heavily hit is the the north east of the country, where weather forecasters are predicting as much as 10 cm of snow over the next few days.

Temperatures may reach -8 Celsius in the north east today, and roads across Poland are being gritted after the first snows.

After being blanketed with snow, Warsaw is threatened with black ice on Friday with light rain expected, followed by more snow.

Krakow, in the south of the country, has so far not witnessed any snow, although further south in the Tatra Mountains, fans of winter sports will not be left wanting, with as much as 10 cm expected over the coming days.

Police are calling on drivers to adapt their speed to the changing conditions. (nh)
